Monday, 4 February 2013 in defeat, Didier
Tebily Yves Drogba was
graceful. Despite
swallowing the bitter pill of
defeat that has dented his beautiful career – without
a Nations Cup trophy, the
Ivorian has sent a
passionate plea to the
Super Eagles “Please, win the Nations
Cup for us”, he pleaded as
he hugged Stephen Keshi
and his former teammate
Mikel Obi after the 2-1
defeat in the quarter final match at Rustenberg. Drogba’s army of super
stars were tipped by all
and sundry to win the
match against a relatively
young and inexperienced
Super Eagles. The Eagles stepped up their game and
were immaculate in their
form, attack, defence and
discipline. They stung Cote
d’Ivoire and have made
their critics to swallow their words. “Your team was
beautiful”, Drogba told
Keshi as he hugged him. “If
you beat us and don’t
win the trophy, it will be a
slight to us. But if you win the trophy, it will be a
thing of joy and
justification that you are
the best in the
tournament”, Drogba told
Keshi who praised him for his maturity and high
display of professionalism. Ex-international, Peterside
Idah who witnessed the
emotional embrace and
discussion said that he was
touched by Drogba’s
professionalism. “It was an emotional
meeting and I was very
proud of the Super Eagles.
We should learn to
appreciate our own. Honestly, it is a shame
that many Nigerians do
not appreciate the Eagles.
Here in South Africa, we
are proud of Eagles and
the whole of South Africa love and appreciate the
Eagles. The South Africans lost
but they still love their
Bafana Bafana”, the
former goalkeeper-turned
analyst and Pastor said as
many people hugged him and congratulated him.
